About The Work

What conversations did we have during our tenure in paradise? What conversations might we have if we could re-enter it now? Through a generatively made Reality TV show, the piece Paradiso tries to answer these questions. One aspect of the piece is a mini-television studio/sculpture, complete with video cameras, backdrops, lights, and three actors: Adam, Eve, and the Spaceman. Projected in an adjacent room, the live video broadcast uses three computer generated voices and a database of character dialogue to create a continuously changing program. The result is an endless conversation between the characters of paradise, sometimes insightful, often times humorous, and always entertaining.
